Teaching a Quilting Class

Hi There!

For months, I've been tossing around this topic in my brain and this evening, I decided to write it down and present it to you...

What do you think?  Nothing is really written in stone and these are simply suggestions... to make life easier for a quilting teacher.  *s*

Here goes:

If you would like to teach a class, there are typically 4 or 5 documents you need to prepare.

1 – Present your “Basic Class Info” to the person(s) in charge of “Classes”.

2 – Information sheet to pass out to Guild Members or to read in front of Guild Members.  This is like an “Advertisement”.  You’re trying to encourage members to sign up for your class.

3 – List of class requirements, for those members that signed up.  Note: You may invite them to bring their camera as you’re giving them permission to take pictures of your quilt samples.  Or you may state, “No pictures allowed.”  You may also ask members to bring along a notebook and pen or pencil to take notes or you may supply their “notes” - See Item #5.

4 - Your crib notes or your teaching schedule. These are your personal notes that you will need, as you teach. You don’t want to read ALL of your notes verbatim.  Just crib notes are fine – you can elaborate from there.

5 – Notes, drawings, sketches, block(s) or Quilt pattern. These will be given to the class attendees.  At this point, you may or may not give them permission to take pictures of your quilt samples or whatever you have brought along.
